Site to Upload Photos To

  1. I signed up to Flickr but it either takes ages to upload photos of fails completely. Similar story with Photobucket but is a bit more stable. Is there anywhere else that's good?
     
  2. Have you tried the Flickr uploader? I don't think the problem can entirely be down to the site, what size pictures are you trying to push up there and what are your upload speeds like?

    I use flickr, photobucket is a pretty dead platform for sharing images. Alternatives are places like 500px, instagram and Deviantart, but I would figure out why flickr is having an issue before rushing to something else - I've used it for over 5 years without a problem.
     
  3. Flickr seems to be hit or miss sometimes, and lately there is more talk of it getting sold... It's still my pick for a "free" service provide you do need the extra space... otherwise I have been a big fan of SmugMug for a while now... not free, but the base account gives you 99% of what you will ever need... especially of your goal is mostly display and backup... Mine has 148GB of photos on there that I can link to, embed, and download (full rez)... just an option to check out...

  4. Uploads speeds are 5mb/sec now I'm back on fibre. It's hit or miss. yesterday I managed to upload 96 picture OK but took a while. Then this morning I try and upload another 50 and it doesn't like it. I've bulk processed the images so the resolution is down to 1080 but I'm not sure if I could get away with it being bigger. With the web it doesn't matter much anyway.
